About the eLearning Hub

Welcome to the eLearning Hub

This is the home of CPD eLearning and Trainees Online (TrOn).

For consultants and career grade doctors we have CPD eLearning, formerly CPD Online. Time is limited; it is important not to waste it. Why not let other expert mental health professionals, predominantly clinical and academic psychiatrists, sift the literature, then produce easily digested learning modules that can be absorbed either on a computer or mobile device?

At present, you are able to generate all 50 credits towards your annual CPD requirement by using our modules and podcasts. A certificate of satisfactory completion of each learning event is provided, and there are also opportunities to record reflections. You can subscribe as an individual or institution. We are open to all mental health professions, as well as from outside the UK.

For trainees we offer TrOn to assist with preparation for Paper A of the Membership exams. The modules have been designed and written by authors with experience of sitting the exams themselves, then put through rigorous peer review by the Exam panel and expert reviewers.

As both CPD eLearning and TrOn are produced by the RCPsych, quality and relevance is guaranteed.

We are particularly grateful if users leave feedback on any aspect of both products and, if you would like to get further involved, just drop us a line for details of opportunities.

We hope you enjoy using CPD eLearning and/or TrOn and, if you have benefited, please do tell your colleagues!
